Connie, our events host, has a quick review of an exciting new book: Buddha Standard Time by Lama Surya Das!
Don’t miss Buddha Standard Time, the new book from Lama Surya Das, one of the world’s greatest spiritual teachers.
After 20 years of study and retreats in India, Nepal and France, he came back to America and founded the Dzogchen Center to help bring Tibetan Buddhism to the West. Lama Surya Das is a known throughout the world as a beloved teacher, author and spiritual activist. You don’t have to be a Buddhist to enjoy this remarkable book–anyone on a spiritual path will be touched by the message of Lama Surya Das and will see why he is affectionately called “The American Lama.”
Drawing on Tibetan Buddhism and other great wisdom traditions, this book shares one of the great realizations of Buddhism: the minutes and hours of our days do not simply march from future to present to past. Rather, each moment is intersected by a fourth dimension, and by learning to live in this dimension—Buddha Standard Time—people can reduce the amount of stress in their lives and find greater focus, fulfillment, creativity, and even wisdom. Far from being at the mercy of time’s demands, readers will finally realize that they have, in fact, all the time in the world.
